Trattoria Lisina Restaurant and Duchman Winery with kids

Like wine tasting and have kids?  This winery has a playground and an Italian Restaurant. Trattoria Lisina is an Italian Restaurant located in Driftwood, Texas.   It is in beautiful Texas Hill County and looks like an Italian villa with vines climbing up the walls.   You can get fresh made pasta and wood fired pizzas here.   On the day we visited we sat inside the restaurant.  I would make reservations if you aren’t going off peak hours as it was pretty busy.   We ordered ravioli, pizza and lasagna and all were delicious.

Sunday 11am - 9pm

This Italian restaurant has a bonus it is located next to the Duchman Winery.  This winery boasts 100% texas grapes and 100% texas wines.  They have daily tastings which cost $12 per person.  The tastings consist of a flight of 6 different wines you can choose from reds or whites.   You can also take a self-guided tour of their windowed barrel room, tank fermentation area, and production area where the bottling and labeling take place.

We joined the Duchman Wine club that day as it is free to join.  You just need to agree to buy 3, 6 or 12 bottles each quarter.    We chose the 3 bottles and red / white mix, you can choose all red or all white as well.   We enjoyed 2 free tastings that day and picked up 3 bottles of wine to take home.  

Member Benefits include:
Complimentary tastings for 2 members
Member only Pick Up Parties and special wine club events
30% discount on all bottles/cases purchased

If you are going here with kids I recommend ordering take out from Trattoria Lisina and eating outside at one of the many tables in the shade and next to a pretty large playground or tables under the tress next to vast open fields for the kids to run around.  Then you can buy a bottle of wine at the winery and have a pleasant afternoon.    Bonus: you can go back in and get a scoop of gelato after you finish your food.   Kids will love the gelato and playground.
